Vitamin C kills Epstein-Barr viral infection

woman exhusted(NaturalHealth365) Chances are that you’re going to get an Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) infection at some point in your life, so you may be interested in new treatments for the virus. Recently, scientists have admitted that vitamin C may be an answer to EBV – which can cause mononucleosis, chronic fatigue syndrome, and Hodgkins’ disease.

Can you really kill EBV with vitamin C?

A research study published in the May edition of the journal Medical Science Monitor looked at whether high-dose vitamin C can kill EBV. The authors had looked at patients from their clinic who had had diagnoses of EBV infection, mononucleosis, chronic fatigue syndrome, or fatigue between 1997 and 2006.

Some of the patients had been treated with intravenous vitamin C. Can you guess what they found?

Looks like the Epstein-Barr viral infection can’t survive in a vitamin C environment

The scientific evidence is clear – vitamin C does decrease EBV levels.  As study authors Nina Mirikova and Ronald Hunninghake wrote, “Our data provides evidence that high dose intravenous vitamin C therapy has a positive effect on disease duration and reduction of viral antibody levels.”

That is, they found vitamin C to help patients get over mononucleosis faster, and individuals infected with EBV had lower levels of the virus after receiving vitamin C treatment. They made the following conclusions.

  • Patients with higher levels of vitamin C before treatment tended to have lower levels of EBV virus, which suggests that low vitamin C allows EBV virus to grow faster.
  • EBV levels dropped by nearly half after vitamin C treatment.
  • Those who had at least five vitamin C treatments recovered faster than patients without vitamin C treatment.

To kill EBV – how much vitamin C is enough?

The study participants received 7 to 50 grams of vitamin C. That’s a much higher level than recommended by most government health agencies.  As ridiculous as this may sound, those same ‘intelligent’ health experts suggest that 60 milligrams (or 0.060 grams) is enough for good health.  Unfortunately, when dealing with a serious health crisis, “government approved” nutritional guidelines are simply NOT enough.

Obviously, you’re not going to be able to get 7 to 50 grams (7,000 to 50,000 milligrams) from diet alone because that would be a full-time job – to say the least.  For high dosages, it’s always best to work with an experienced physician trained in the administration of IV protocols.

What are the best sources of vitamin C in the diet?

Naturally, even when feeling great, you should try to consume as many antioxidant-rich foods as possible. The health benefits of eating a nutrient dense diet include, improved heart and immune function – especially when receiving a high amount of vitamin C from the diet.

And, just in case you’re new to this information, we’re talking about amounts in the milligrams – not grams. As a general ‘health rule’, eat plenty of fruits and vegetables, such as:

  • Citrus fruits like, camu camu
  • Freshly prepared juices like, carrrot/apple/beet/lemon
  • Red and green bell peppers
  • Strawberries
  • Tomatoes and tomato juice
  • Broccoli
  • Sweet potatoes or yams

Of course, if you can, always buy organic foods. If you find the local supermarket is too expensive – get to a local, farmers market and get to know your local farmer. The food is fresher and more delicious plus, in many cases, you’ll pay less at farmers markets or direct from a farmer.

Keeping your immune system strong with a healthy diet is the first step in preventing EBV infection and stopping EBV infection from turning into mononucleosis or another health condition. If you do have high EBV levels, you might consider asking your doctor about IV vitamin C today.

    I had this virus and I can tell you modern medicine offers very little help. You are on your own, which may be a good thing if you know what to do. This article got it right. A healthy diet filled with vegetable juices and smoothies is a great help.

    Then there is supplementation, which must include high doses of vitamin C in liposomal form. Thanks to this approach I no longer have any symptoms and feel better than ever.

    • Dillon Knowlton

      Hi Kelly,

      How much liposomal vitamin C were you taking with mono? I’m currently trying to get rid of a bad case, and most dosages I see online are for the normal variety of Vit C supplements.

      Any help is greatly appreciated!

  • DP2008

    INSTEAD OF TRUSTING THE VIT C ALONE, IT IS Better to use the 3 herbs …Black Walnut (green hull) ,Cloves and wormwood!

  • mrhdiver

    Liposomal vitamin C – you can buy it ready made or save money and make it yourself with a cheap ultrasonic machine (~ $30), lecithin powder, ascorbic acid granules and a little bicarbonate of soda (if you wish to keep it Ph neutral). Simple, cheap and so effective.

    • ffonz

      mrhdiver…….
      Can you provide more info on this please..
      [] like quantities/ratios/formulas of ingredients…
      [] if water is used in the ‘mixing/combining’ process…
      [] length of time recommended to mix/combine…
      [] an ‘example’ of the kind of machine you use…
      and anything else -?? …to get a full understanding.

      Hope you see this and reply. I’m certain a LOT of
      readers will really appreciate your detailed info to
      become self sufficient at this lifelong protocol.

      Thank you…

        Sure. Slightly warm 1 cup distilled water, put in blender, add 3 tablespoons sunflower lecithin and blend high for 45 to 60 seconds. Pour onto ultrasonic cleaner. Slightly warm 1/2 cup distilled water, put into blender, add 1 tablespoon ascorbic acid. Blend high for 45 to 60 seconds. Stir in 1 tablespoon sodium bicarbonate slowly. Blend until fully dissolved. Stir this mixture into the ultrasonic machine and mix with the lecithin. Turn the machine on to 480 seconds (8 minutes) and stir frequently with plastic or wooden spoon or straw. Store in a clean glass jar with tight lid in refrigerator. Lasts at least a month. Take a tablespoon twice daily if healthy. More if ill. You can take a half cup two or 3 times a day or more if severely ill. You can not overdose. The body will use what it needs and eliminate the rest.

        I replied with specifics twice – but I don’t see either post.

        Let’s try again.

          time and effort to check back and respond to my
          request. Not too many bother to do so these days

    I agree with everyone vitamin C is vital, but black walnut, cloves and wormwood are a must. People with this virus are likely to have yeast infections and parasites. The herbs are needed to get rid of Candida and parasites.

    By doing that your immune system will be able to operate better and eliminate the viral symptoms.

    • freedomdove

      I bought a tincture from NOW Foods that contained those three herbs. It tasted horrible at the full dose so I found that putting it in capsules makes it much easier to take. One full dropper will fit into a size “00” capsule. Just make sure to take the capsules quickly after filling because the alcohol will start dissolving the capsule material.

      Thank you for this vid link mrhdiver.. I see it’s a long
      one so I’ve put it on pause to hold for now and just
      came to say thanks for helping out with your good
      info for us all here. Looks like an interesting vid with
      the Alan Smith story in it. Hard to beat ‘real proof’ of
      that calibre. More power to ‘real medicine’ info.
